Seattle Review of Azur & Asmar

"Michel Ocelot's animated fantasy of blond, blue-eyed Azur and dark-skinned, brown-eyed Asmar, brothers in all but blood and raised on the fairy tales of nanny Jenane's Arab homeland, is a gorgeous "Arabian Nights" odyssey and a story of brotherhood across cultures."

Chicago Tribune Review of Azur & Asmar

"Is it too early to announce the most beautiful film of 2009? Two days into the new year, it's hard to imagine a more transporting cinematic experience coming our way than "Azur & Asmar," an animated feature from the French writer-director Michel Ocelot.

GKIDS - Azur and Asmar

"AZUR & ASMAR is a brilliant new animated adventure from Michel Ocelot, acclaimed director of Kirikou and the Sorceress. It is the story of two boys raised as brothers, who compete in a dangerous quest through foreign lands to find and free the Fairy of the Djinns, held captive in a crystal palace. The film breaks new cinematic ground both thematically and visually, and has been compared to Pan's Labyrinth, Triplets of Bellville, and the films of Miyazaki!"
